    DNA Targeting Poison

    Thought this was an interesting read. Considering I never read about poison.

    Seems like a much better option than 1080 and better than gene drive as it's pretty hard to come back from that. Rabbit option could do wonders also.

    if it was feasible sounds a lot better than 1080 and other poisons currently used.

    I can see why this technology is controversial, imagine it released amongst certain parts of human society.

    I'm all for it in regards to controlling invasive species here in NZ, it would be a real game changer.

    Even side effects on non targeted species could be devastating.

    The poison for erectile dysfunction in possums might do something totally different to another animal? But I know next to nothing about genetic sequencing.

    Yeah, other than a little 'genetic engineering' with the Mrs I know bugger all. I missed that bit in high school, I was away for that section of science.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!
